Fantastic follow-up to the night before; in its own way is on par with that show.

Set 1 - all solid. The ending really makes the set - Estimated makes its third appearance of the run, and that Scarlet has got to be one of THE best stand-alones I can remember; certainly one of the best from '77, where pairing it without Fire was rare. Based on how unprepared lyrically Jerry was for the Fire debut on the 18th, it makes sense they'd wait. Check out the passion of the song's finale jam, right about when the patch comes in!

Set 2 - I can't remember the last time Phil delivered the Other One windup right on the heels of St. Stephen's final line, but oh, it works, kids! The jam that follows deconstructs a la Europe '72 and becomes a beautiful golden pond of notes between Jerry, Keith, and Bobby, naturally evolving into the pin-drop Stella. It's a lovely creation.

This run at the Winterland has some timeless music to it; while I think the 19th is the best of the bunch, this one's a close second. Bravo, boys.

The Stephen > Other One > Stella is desert island material.

No one I've ever heard play can pull of this kind of segue into Stella like Jerry. Absolute beauty in guitar...

The guitar runs in Stella are pristine

Funny how '77 has so many moments like this. Jerry just clean and melodic and playing soul music

Beautiful sound. Charlie miller does a great job again. St. Stephens is superb. Slowed down a bit, with crystyl clear audio.

Hey, Patty Falafal, you don't offend me. I do the same thing. How many versions of "Me and My Uncle" does one need? "Completists" can howl and gnash their teeth, but so what.

That said, this entire stand at Winterland is top-notch.

Subject: The first review of this show in almost 3 years?
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I always wondered what happened to these shows, and now they are back.

Jerry is on another level for his solo in Row Jimmy. It will bring tears to your eyes. Like, rapture. The rest of the show is 5* too - great versions of everyday songs like Ramble on Rose and Cassidy, and good sound quality throughout.

Subject: Good show, good sound
Some good playing and singing, but too many flubs by the band for a 5. (St. Stephan, Around and Around, to name of few.)

A lot of focused, laid back energy throughout the show. Great sound. A beautiful gem. You won't be disappointed. A '77 at Winterland!

Subject: thanks charlie!
once again, the intrepid charlie miller brings us another stellar upgrade - but of course this show was golden to start with. for some reason i hadn't heard it before today and, well, yeehaw! minglewood, deal, cassidy, peggy-o, b.e. women all rock - then the nutzo scarlet set-stopper: rippin' first solo, and crazy-epic-climax ending jam! not to mention set 2...!

Subject: Other One ending
There is some absolutely beautiful soft and pretty guitar work by Jerry during the last 5 mins of the Other One before it segues into Stella Blue. Be sure to lend an ear ;) 5* officially

Subject: ABSOLUTELY
right on the money...five stars for the 19th and 20th...I know "purists" (to steal a baseball term) will hate this but I did a three disc (omitted some of my lesser liked--to be kind--tunes) composite of the two nites that just is an absolute screaming freiking joy to listen to, which is what it really is all about anyhow...we all enjoy the boys in our own special way...thanks again to all involved in making this music available to us, we're sincerely forever in your debt,
signed-grateful buckdancer.

Subject: 4 or a 5?
Tough decision. Terrapin second encore's nice. This source is definately better than the other one. Im gonna give it a 4 due to the nasty flubbing of Peggy-o.

Subject: As good as Winterland gets
These are very hot, timeless shows. Whole first set, second set, Scarlet (one of the last of the stand alone style and I think my favorite stand alone on this whole site) is exceptional. Check out the triumphant St Stephen>Other One a magical combo on an off night, however they were very on this night...

Sound quality is peerless - This is the show that you give to people when they want to get it...

This show, and the night before, would make a great Dick's Picks.

Thank you archives!

Marching in Winterland!

All three nights were solid. These shows sold me on the Dead and to hear them again is a great pleasure. Thanks, Archive!

Trust me, folks, you will treasure these shows. Quality sound, serious performance!

Subject: Very Nice
This is a strong show throughout. Sound is crisp. Every song has it moments so I won't review everyone. However, pay attenetion to Scarlet Begonia's, it has a stronger than normal jam and stands alone great. St. Stephen>Other One>Stella very good with unique jams throughout, and a great transition from the spacy end of other one into stella.

Two encores with a standard US Blues followed by a typical Terrapin that has a moment or two of its own.

Enjoyable show typical for the time, but I really enjoyed the varying jams that struck me as different than most.
